It's come to our attention that our icon is apparently so awful you guys can't be asked to look at it anymore. I mean, I personally thought it was great, not too flashy but straight to the point, but I guess some people disagree quite a bit. :shrug:

So, since it's so awful, we're leaving it up to you guys to make our new one! No restrictions, except for that "selftaught-artists" or "STA" must be on it. It can be animated, brightly colored, black and white, traditional, whatever you guys want. You're limited to one entry per person- but if you come up with a better idea you can switch out entries. ;)
There will be a folder set for these, and they will NOT count towards your once-a-month submission limit!

Deadline: We don't really have one yet, but probably not very long since this is a relatively small scale thing. When we've decided we're done, we'll give a week's notice.

So. Ready. Set.
GO!

 It doesn't matter to me what the icon is. It is not important enough for me to have an issue with. For myself I think that the work that people put into a group is what makes a group stand out. But it is a good chance for people to get creative.

While I disagree on the point that icon is awful, a new icon might reinvigorate the group's morale.
Are there specifications for the icon itself? (i.e. What size or color should be utilized or avoided?)

No specifics really, other than "SelfTaught-Artists" or "STA" must be on there in some way. 
I also would prefer if it wasn't overly flashy or seizure inducing, but it's not at all a requirement. Just whatever you think fits us :)

I think the logo is fine and I also think your reaction to the critiques was very mature for an artist -- our breed being known for having a very thin skin.

To be perfectly honest, I had a bit of fun with the complainer. I have only gotten one, but they were so bloody rude about it that I figured I'd put them on display a bit- they submitted two and I vetoed them simply because I could, then promptly opened this. They'll get a new icon, but it's not going to be theirs ;)

Now that is a much better response than "go f*ck yourself". Good for you.

Haha, I was having fun by the end. :D

I know right? Colorful but not in your face, to the point but not overly flashy. Seemed just fine to me!

Haha glad you agree! I honestly was going to veto whatever he came up with no matter how good it was simply because he was a twat. Then I saw them and was like ... Yeah no.

Hey there!
This is a good start but we'd like "STA" or "self taught artists" on it somewhere :)
